An energizing and safe activity that develops spatial awareness and increases students’ ability to create characters and work together as an ensemble.
Kitty Wants a Corner
While Kitty moves around the circle, students behind Kitty’s line of vision try to switch spots. Students must switch spots by moving through the circle, not around. If Kitty sees an empty spot during a switch, Kitty tries to take it. Coaching Hints: Have students make eye contact and try to secretly change spots.
Kitty can ask different questions to create improvisation and new character ideas. For example, Kitty may say, “Please, I need to use your phone to call a friend,” or, “I really need to borrow some money.” This game helps create original characterization while playing.
